How historically accurate these episodes may be, is debatable. Never-the-less, they are great fun listening. A trip back to the years before WW2, and a world not yet forever changed.

Makes you wish the mournfull horn of a tramp steamer could still be heard.

The music score was timed so that stations subscribed to this pre-recorded series could fill in their local commercials while it played.
